Knit another owl friend, this one’s for Nicki. I’m quite fond of him!

Knitting without a pattern is pretty liberating, and I love how these critters all have such personality.

This little guy came into being with no pattern, and I hadn’t had my needles out in months and months and months.

Pretty proud of him! He’s for my mum, who’s going away on holiday for a couple of weeks and will miss her bird (who I’m birdsitting). This little chap can join her on her trip.

These two little fellows came into being this weekend.

The octopus is by request, for Theunis. The bumble bee is the first creature I’ve made without following any sort of pattern – I plan to give him to my grandmother, who taught me how to knit when I was a little girl.
